True. Its not like centuries/millenia of strong martian winds and loose sand could bury anything that deep.

It's temping to think that erosion happened at the same rate on Mars that it did on Earth. But the truth is, we don't know how old the surface is we're looking at. Some of it could be recent. Some of it could be billions of years old.

So rifts in the time/space continuum?

Mind=Blown.

so which of the natural geological /aeolian processes do you think occurred in this instance ? and taking into account that of which we know to be true of this region, and that your preponderance towards form, via comparative pictures led you to volcanism in the first instance to be the probably cause, yet there are no volcanoes..

just trying to understand

Now funbox I know you are not as dumb as you are making out it has NOTHING to do with the process, but what appears to be unnatural can actually be natural.

The pictures I posted were to show sometimes nature can make straight edges which many on here don't understand so if they are seen on object on Mars or the Moon they appear to be possibly manufactured when they are not.

Except they aren't straight lines......each of the stones are individual yet they form a perfect arch?


Perfect arch I take it your not a stone mason! Most stone arches have stones with reasonably straight edges

nothing to do with the process? SURELY its everything to do with the process, how else are geometry's defined and constantly redefined ?

maybe its because we have heard this line in the thread many times already, probably even by you dear wmd_2008

a tad oversimplified at this stage of the thread.

here's my hypothesis

it looks like a thin crusty piece that's fallen over, its had massive temperature fluctuations over numerous sols and expanded on its outer edges more than it has at its base, causing it to crack from the top down as it expands .

maybe its cooler in the shade

Well, look. Here's the same kind of "arch," except that it hasn't fallen over and broken. All natural processes.

a natural arch? , that whole piece looks like a picaso , very peculiar edge/shadow/ opposing parallels.
like somethings making patterns in the sand

I think I see a representation of Martian DNA carved into it, too!

If someone showed you the this picture and told you they found it out in the desert, would you even think twice about it being some kind of old stone archway?

Stone archway? No way, it looks like a natural feature to me.

They said so. Downsampled images, is not my invention. See at the bottom of this note from NASA: "http://mars.nasa.gov/mer/gallery/edr_filename_key.html"

And if you still persist on your doubts here is another one:
"http://www.mars-browser.co.uk/curiosity/detail.php?s=571&i=NAV_LEFT_B&p=NLB_448179859EDR_D0300000SSS_15810M_" See the note at the end. It says downsampled.

I stand corrected! I thought you were referring to the "MastCam" archives, which usually always contain the thumbnails and (later on) all of the fullsize images.

As for the NavCams: that's indeed where NASA/JPL uploads quite a number of downsampled images, some of which are never available in fullsize (AFAIK).

Good stuff, funBox ... I wonder how many potential crinoids, ammonites and other interesting features might be contained in those outcrops (or beneath the martian sands).

Even though we've seen quite a number of good 'anomalies' up to now, I can't wait to see something 'substantial' in hi-res, something that'll leave no room for speculation ... until then, we'll just have to hang on in there!

I saw that. Creepy crawlies under the stairs.

P.S. -- This whole little area has many interesting features. Hopefully we'll get some better images.
